Baylor has one heck of a busy Saturday on tap with the last home football game of the season and men's basketball's big game in Kentucky competing for the hearts, and attention spans, of Bears fans.
Today's a huge day in the world of Baylor Athletics with the two biggest sports on campus playing games of critical importance at just about the same time. This thread will be your one-stop shop for any information about Baylor Football vs. Oklahoma State and Baylor Basketball at Kentucky.
